The Sight and Sound Top Ten Poll lauded Citizen Kane as the best film ever, by both the critics and directors . As I said before, I don’t see what all the fuss is about Citizen Kane. It wasn’t very entertaining and was almost a chore to watch. It baffles me that what I saw as a lackluster movie could have earned first place for the past forty years in this poll (they have one every 10 years). I think it must be like eating green beans when I was a kid. I hated eating them, but I was told I had to because they were good for me. I plan to watch the rest of the films listed to see what I’m missing, but I can assure you my list would be quite different.
